Abigail Henderson has ​$1440.00 budgeted for spending money on an upcoming trip to Country A and Country B. Country​ A's currency is trading at ​$1.40 per currency​ A, and Country​ B's currency is trading at ​$1.60 per currency B. She plans to spend more time in Country​ A, so she wants to have four times as much of currency A as currency B. Set up and solve a system of equations to model this​ problem, and explain what the answer means in practical terms. Complete the equation that represents the total cost of purchasing currency. Let x be the number of currency A and y the number of currency B.

Here's how I think you do it. First, set up your equations:

\(A = 4B\)
\(1.4 A + 1.6 B = 1440\)

You end up with

a = 800.0
b = 200.0

So you need 800 worth of country A's currency, and 200 worth of country B's currency, to make 1440 because of conversion rate.

The best way to say thank you is with a positive review:
